ROAD CONSTRUCTION UPDATES
Phase 1 of the Marin Headlands and Fort Baker Transportation Infrastructure and Management Plan has been completed. The National Park Service and the Federal Highway Administration want to thank you for your patience during Phase 1 construction and hope that visitors to the Marin Headlands will enjoy all of the improvements.
Fort Baker, the ninth and final "Post-to-Park" converstion in the Golden Gate National Parks, is a 335 acre former 1905 U.S. Army post located immediately north of the Golden Gate Bridge. This hidden gem of a site consists of over 25 historic army buildings clustered around a main parade ground, a sheltered harbor protected by a jetty, a number of historic gun emplacements, and trails and forested areas climbing gently up from San Francisco Bay.
Fort Baker features a hands-on children’s museum and learning center, the Bay Area Discovery Museum; a first-class lodge, Cavallo Point—the Lodge at the Golden Gate; an institution dedicated to dialog and action on global environmental issues, the Institute at the Golden Gate; as well as the U.S. Coast Guard Station Golden Gate and the Travis Sailing Center.
